You're very constipated. When we pass gas and we haven't moved our bowels for more than 3 days in a row it becomes very foul smelling because of the bacteria and toxins that are building up in the colon that can't be expelled around a mass of stool.
Are you more sedentary than you were before ? Check the side effects from any medications you are taking because many of the medications cause constipation as a side effect especially pain medications.
You need to drink lots of water( 64 oz. per day) and slowly increase your fiber intake over a two week period to 25-30 grams a day. Having a daily set schedule for moving your bowels every day helps keep you from getting constipated. I hope this helps you.
